I love this cake and the simplicity of it...classic Martha! It would be perfect for brunch; it tastes like a strawberry coffee cake. I am sure that you could use almost any berry and have fabulous results but the strawberries are really delicious!

Strawberry Cake
Adapted from Martha Stewart via
Makes a 9-inch cake

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pie plate
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound strawberries

Clean, hull and slice strawberries in half...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch pie plate. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together into a medium bowl.

Put butter and 1 cup sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Reduce speed to medium-low; mix in egg, milk, and vanilla.

Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture.

Transfer batter to buttered pie plate.

Arrange strawberries on top of batter, cut sides down and as close together as possible.

Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over berries.

Bake cake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. Bake until cake is golden brown and firm to the touch, about 1 hour. Let cool in pie plate on a wire rack.

Cut into wedges. Cake can be stored at room temperature, loosely covered, up to 2 days.

I love the simplicity of this cake, plus the berries look so artful. I see fresh peaches on this one, maybe with some cinnamon sugar sprinkles. Gotta love Martha!

I never like baking with straberries as they always turn funny and don't like the taste in my mouth...but I think that after seeing this, I might change my mind

The cake is really nice and moist. I actually used whole wheat flour and it still turned out really tasty. I used 1 and 1/4 cups.
